India is located in the Northern Hemisphere. The main land extends between latitudes 8°4'N and 37°6'N and longitudes 68°7'E and 97°25'E.
India is 11.5 hours ahead of United States. Because India USA are on the opposite sides of the Earth. Thus, when it is day time for India it will be night for USA.
As we know the earth rotates form west to east the sun rays first fall on the eastern most longitudes.
 So, the countries which are on the eastern side of Prime meridian are ahead of it whereas western parts of Prime Meridian are behind it.
